The first run against the GTR is very close with the Golf slowly edging up top. The second pull just seems like the GTR ends up letting off. The third run has an even start for both but again the Golf pulls up top although a bit more strongly than in the first run. The fourth run is interesting as the GTR gets a bit of a jump and opens a half car lead. The Golf has to run it down and it does pulling past decisively. Every single run shows the Golf is making more power which is no surprise considering it is around the ~750 horsepower range depending on how far HGP pushed this one.
The EFR 7670 turbocharger is a popular upgrade for the Evo X but it just does not put out enough power for the Evo X to match a twin turbo 3.6 liter VR6 Golf on the highway. Guys have hit over 500 at all four wheels with this turbo on the EVO but this car just does not look to be running that strong.
The HGP 3.6 twin turbo Golf swaps certainly look to be running strong.
